Alice in Wonderbland



This is first time I left the theater in the middle of a movie this year so far. I just don't get it, folks. Explain please.

  1. What drove you out? Haven't seen it yet, but it is on my list. Should I think twice?

  2. I saw it too, and just kept waiting for it to get better. It never did. Even seeing my beloved cheshire cat, the sole reason I went, couldn't save it for me. That is two hours of my life that I will never get back.

  4. Marlene, oh, I'm glad I left then. I went home to play Halo, and that was much more fun.

    Zanne and Wjackalope, a LOT was happening on screen, but nothing was really HAPPENING, if that makes sense. God, I was bored out of my mind.

  5. I heard the frame narrative was way more interesting than the bulk of the film in Wonderland. The idea of an older Alice is intriguing, as is the idea of her going back into Victorian society changed from her adventure. But nope, instead it's just a lot of crazy special effects. I don't think I'm going to bother seeing it.

  6. I refuse to go. I hate what he does to things. Imposes his own tiresome shit on top of ripping off other people's ideas to the point that all you have left is a bit pile of copy-cat crap.
    But, when I saw the freaky eye contact lenses on Depp for a children's movie, I just decided that was it. Not going.

  7. Maybe I won't see this now...

    On a lighter note, did you know Lewis Carroll was a brilliant mathematician and wrote math books? Apparently, when the Queen liked Alice and wanted a copy of Carroll's next book, he sent her a math book.

  10. Glad I wasn't the only one that thought this film was so average. I wouldn't walk out of it, but I kinda felt disappointed. Lucky you left before they tried to shoehorn an epic plot-line into an otherwise bland story

  11. It was not very good at all; I didn't leave, but it felt like a molestation of Carroll's work, and that really bugged me. I'm not usually a big Tim Burton fan, but this was really a pathetic attempt at making something weird weirder when it was already just weird enough. Screw you, Burton.

    Also, the acting just felt subpar throughout the whole movie.
